uOttawa Outdoors Club de plein air is excited to bring the REEL ROCK Film Tour to the University of Ottawa!
In its ninth year, the REEL ROCK Film Tour features a special presentation of the highly-anticipated feature-length film “Valley Uprising.”
The greatest untold story of American counterculture is that of the Yosemite Valley rock climbers. For the past fifty years, Yosemite’s massive cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite.
The larger-than-life characters of Yosemite carved out an “extreme bohemian” lifestyle in the Valley, living on red wine and boiled potatoes, clashing with National Park authorities, and pioneering the boldest climbs on Earth. The torch has been passed down across three generations of climbers; through rivalries, tragedies and triumphs, the art of Yosemite climbing has advanced beyond anyone’s imagination.
Valley Uprising is the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold tradition: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity — and the laws of the land.
Watch the trailer here
Reel Rock shows are spirited events where climbers and outdoor lovers come together to celebrate and sample the ultimate in adventure filmmaking.
uOttawa Outdoors Club de plein air is an SFUO sanctioned club at the University of Ottawa promoting the great outdoors lifestyle with various activities and learning opportunities for its members.
